We are onto a new month of challenges at Make My Monday and this time the theme is AUTUMN and the first thing they want us to do is 'use our supplies' - KRAFT AND STRING. I've used some Tim Holtz Kraft resist card, sponged with Distress ink as a background. A Sizzix (SU) topnote die cut has been partially embossed in a cuttlebug embossing folder using one of the wonderful Sizzix embossing diffusers to leave an oval shape un-embossed so that I could stamp the branch. Another small tag shape was cut using a Sizzix die and onto this I've added a posy of Sizzix tattered leaves and branches cut from distress-inked watercolour paper with a hand cut swirly pine cone (sort of) and some stamped acorns. I'm afraid I was in such a hurry to take a photo of the card before the light disappeared that I haven't left time for the glue to dry on the pinecone but now it has dried of course there is no white streak in the middle!! The leafy branch and acorns are stamps from Stampin' Up Touch of Nature set. Some string tied around and a greeting and there it is.
Do pop over to Make My Monday to see the inspiration from the design team and maybe even take part in the challenge - there is a prize on offer which has to be a bonus!
